    poldragonet MIP KIT 549 EUROS, if you don't mind a bit of DIY, this is good value for money, but prepared to do EVERYTHING yourself. I bought it myself last year, and for the money it was good qaulity. The key words there are "For the money" as the saying goes you get what you pay for, but with more time and effort build wise, i'm more than happy with the result.

    I went with Poldragonet also and correct it's cheap, but like the above said it all DIY. Here's a link to me unboxing mine http://forum.avsim.net/topic/391708-...running/page-2
    Although I am seeing more and more new FDS Jetmax customers.

    I'm going to wait - hopefully someone comes out with an MIP for the 737 MAX. Have you seen the cockpit? It is much more simplified (clock and flaps digital, no more standby instruments); it could save you thousands in the long run.

    In the mean time, I'll setup 2 15.1" LCD's like the real deal.

    Omni, it looks like you could create a mockup fairly easy. The Annunciators appear to be the same also some of the panels. The rest would be easy to produce with say frontpanelexpress. I know Prosim could simulate the visual positions fairly easy.

    I wasn't a DIYr, but didnt want my investment to go to waste and had to learn and still learning, although burnt out now and wish I would have gone fDS, but I was on a budget. I still say grab some foamalux, cheap panels, leds, switches, and for about 300 US you gotta homemade mip.
